Could we be anymore excited about this?

Fans of popular sitcom Friends will need to book in a Netflix re-watch and start brushing up on their trivia, because a Friends quiz is being hosted at Publique, Madinat Jumeirah.

So gather the Chandler to your Joey, the Phoebe to your Ross or the Rachel to your Monica, and head down to the bar and restaurant from 8pm until 10pm, Wednesday July 3 for the quiz night.

The Alpine-style eatery will head to the Big Apple and transform into Central Perk for the evening, with question rounds themed around the 90s and 00s show.

There is a Dh100 minimum spend per person, and the restaurant doesn't seem to have put a cap on how many team members you can have.

It has also been reported that dressing up is encouraged, with prizes for the best dressed. So think back to your favourite Friends moments and get creative. Given the 90 per cent humidity the UAE has faced in recent weeks, channelling Monica's Barbados hair could be a pretty easy option.

Publique is the same Dubai venue that ran a Harry Potter quiz last week, so perhaps regular pop culture quizzes are perhaps its new thing. Let's hope there is a Sex and the City, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Star Wars or Marvel vs DC quiz on the horizon.

It's not just about trivia at Publique. The eatery serves a nightly three-hour brunch package with an Alpine menu and selected beverages for Dh275 over the summer (usual price is Dh345), or guests can avail the cheese deal, which includes a selection of beverages with set cheese dishes (including raclette, fondue or tartiflette) from Dh220 per couple.
